Sheriff: Word is out there about new 287(g) immigration program

By Stephen Gurr

The message, authorities say, is apparently getting out.

In the nearly three weeks since Hall County sheriff’s officials began a new partnership with federal authorities to identify accused lawbreakers who are in the country illegally, there has been a marked decrease in the number of foreign-born arrestees, officials said.

Meanwhile, 139 people booked into the jail have been interviewed in connection with the 287(g) program, 111 had immigration holds placed on them, and 45 have been picked up by Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents for possible deportation.
